Coconut Cookies

I have been obsessed with coconut and the flavor as of late. It may be that summer fling, but I can’t seem to get enough of it.

My Lemon Cookies are one of the most raved about recipes on my blog. The reviews speak for themselves and have been deemed by many as “THE BEST” Lemon Cookies out there. You may just have to try them for yourself if you haven’t already ;)

They are so good in fact, that I decided to give them a coconut twist. And thus these beautiful Coconut Cookies were born.

These cookies are soft and chewy and have such a delicious flavor!

If you love coconut, you are going to love these cookies!
